Australasian Prevention and Reduction of Family Violence Policing Strategy 2008
The reduction of family violence is an Australasian policing priority. Family violence has a measurable impact on many individuals, families and communities each day. Policing responses need to be supported and underpinned by interventions at the local, community and government levels.
Despite the wealth of knowledge and tremendous efforts to prevent family violence, more needs to be done to ensure the safety and well being of victims. This includes support through the criminal justice systems.
Bringing Australasian police jurisdictions together to further enhance partnerships and ensure consistent approaches is a positive step in achieving the goal of having safer communities that are free from family violence.
